Kalighat Kali Temple

4/1 Anami Sangha, Kalighat, Kolkata, West Bengal 700026 Phone: +91-33-22254723 http://kalighattemple.com/


One of the major points of pilgrimage for devotees of Maa Kali and Lord Shiva, Kalighat is also one of the oldest areas in Kolkata. Legend has it that when Goddess Parvati's body was destroyed, her right toe fell here. The shrine at the main temple here depicts Goddess Kali with a long golden tongue and is different from her usual descriptions.  Kalighat is regarded as one of the 52 Shakti Peethams of India, where the various parts of Sati's body are said to have fallen, in the course of Shiva's Rudra Tandava.

What people dont like

Never entertain the panda's or the priest's who you meet on the roads,they fleece visitors and devotees and are rude ... advised to field your trousers up your feet as its highly filthy & dirty.
